These renderings are images of something called the Aston Martin Super Sport, a 950hp supercar that’s apparently under development by a company called Star Electric Cars France – a company that also makes, among other things, blinged-up electric golf carts.
The Super Sport is not electric (fortunately), and gets a 5.4-litre twin-turbo V8 (smells like a Ford unit to us) that will give up to 950hp. Power goes to the rear wheels via a six-speed manual transaxle and a torsen limited-slip differential.
It’s hardly got pedigree, this car, but with only eight due to be made it will have exclusivity. And if you ask nicely, Star Electric might throw one of its Snow Riders into the deal, an intriguing contraption that looks like a cross between a snowboard, a jet ski, and an instrument of torture.
Quite what Aston itself makes of the Super Sport, we’re not sure – but it certainly makes the £1.2m Aston One-77 seem like conspicuously good value.
Update: We've spoken to Aston Martin - and we can confirm that this is not an officially sanctioned project, and that Aston's legal team are 'looking into the situation'...
